John Rhodes Mini Cooper S at Chateau Impney Hill Climb

We had a cracking weekend at one of the UK’s best little events. In it’s 5th year the Chateau Impney Hill Climb had a lot to offer. The weekend was pleasantly relaxed with great camaraderie between competitors and a party atmosphere in campsite. A fantastic range of historic vehicles took to the hill. From the Edwardian aero engined to prewar sports cars. From V8 Can-Am cars to the Mini Cooper S and everything in between. We were invited to bring John Rhodes Mini Cooper S as part of the Mini 60th Anniversary celebrations. Charles Rainford was behind the wheel and going quicker with every session. Hopefully we’ll get to go back next year.

Jaguar Mk1 ‘BUY 1’ rolling road session

We had the pleasure of spending a morning with our good friend Grant Williams this week. He brought the famous Mk1 Jaguar ‘BUY 1’ in for some rolling road time. It’s always great to catch up with Grant and we were able to find some decent power gains from the 3.8 litre straight six. Looking forward to seeing Grant race the car in the Jack Sears Trophy on Saturday at Goodwood Revival.
